Ratings for Dr. Victor Onwukwe
His front desk staff are not competent, they need to take an administrative course on how to properly communicate over the phone, face to face, how to properly ask for clarifications of names and addresses, how to be curious, and how to greet. I am waiting on my documents that were to be faxed over 8 weeks ago...
Dr.Victor was my DR since his arrival in FortMcMurray. His staff is terrible and disrespectful towards his clients. I have never had a issue personally with Dr Victor however have been trying to make a appointment with him for months and always told he is booked for months. Upon calling this morning the staff decided to tell me that Dr Victor had said he wasnt taking appointments with my self anymore because there was a apparent altercation with his staff. I have never been disrespectful towards DR Victor or his staff. We had a concern awhile back where a referral was not sent to my nero surgeon and they had specified it was sent but in reality it never was causing a delay in me seeing the specialist so I can only think because of their error in sending my referral they are lashing out. But being a patient of his for years I find this was terrible treatment from a "family" dr
This dr has been my dr since I moved to this town. He has helped me deal with my continueing battle with depression to something as simple as a cold. He has a heart of gold and I thank both him and his staff for their concern in my health and wellness.
If you are a women, don't go to this doctor. Also, never ask any question or he will chew you out. He also doesn't perform examinations, doesn't ask questions and doesn't listen. How is he even a doctor? How he can operate a business in this manner is beyond me. Where are the Provincial regulators in this?
He is not a doctor he is a referral agent. No standard of care whatsoever. Has a very close relationship with his computer. No examination in over 7 years of being our family doctor. We now see a real doctor who is accepting new patients Dr Kruger. So refreshing.
After two years with stomach problems, he finally referred me to a specialist for my stomach. Was placed on an 18 month waiting list. This was not the Dr I asked to be sent too. After six months and getting worse, I went into and again asked for referral to the dr I had already asked to be sent too. He was welling to send me to Edmonton rather than refer me to a local specialist right here. I've lost 20lbs in a short time. He doesn't seem to hear you when he on his computer and can be rude. Just done. Wouldn't give him recommendations ever
My husband went for test results today as requested by his Family Dr. only to discover his Dr. is away till the middle of Sept. and notice was on the door to see this Dr. He made an appt. and went this afternoon. Went to see him, asked how his cholesterol was. Response, "It's fine." So my husband asks if he could please write down the numbers as he is trying to keep a record........ .very simple ... a total of 4 numbers. He told him to just pick it up out front, what he failed to tell him is that it was a cost of $5.00 for one piece of paper. It was very deceitful. Really .... paying for simple results .... This was in no way related to anything only patient care. To say that we are disgusted is putting it mildly. Anyone who asks about our experience .... will get the truth. Absolutely unbelievable ...... charging a patient for results. Sorry but some patients want more than ........ you're fine
